I do plaintiff's personal injury work in Hawaii. I had a difficult case that involved a client who was rear-ended while he was driving a Chevy Blazer. The Blazer had virtually no damage to its rear end, and the insurance carrier had hired a hot shot biomechanical engineer to say that, given the minimal damage to the Blazer, that no one in the Blazer could have been hurt because the g-forces were so small, etc.
I was a total stranger who just contacted Jeff out of the blue and he was very generous with his time and insights on the case, and pointed out to me that my Blazer would have had a factory-installed tow hitch (that extended beyond the bumper).
He then walked me through engineering aspects of how the tow hitch would deliver the crash energy to the occupants, rather than the vehicle, and found some crash tests videos to show to the arbitration panel.
Due in large part to Jeff's input, the award was very satisfactory. I would not hesitate to ask him to look at any other case I get that involves similar issues.

Some Quick Tidbits
●75% of all rear end collisions are less than 10 mph and 95% are less than 25 mph.
●On frame railed vehicles like pickup trucks, auto manufacturers don't want any “global buckling of the frame” at speeds less than 35 mph.So that pretty much leaves out so called “crumple zones” in a rear end collision.
●48% of the people that hit you in the rear – are not slowing down.
●The Federal Bumper Standard requiring 2.5 mph bumpers (used to be 5 mph) only applies to passenger cars.Pickup trucks, SUVs and Mini Vans do not apply.
●Low speed rear end collisions (less than 10 mph) accentuate the whiplash more than high speed ones.
●80% of all rear end collisions are caused by driver inattention.
●The acceleration of the occupant when hit from the rear is 2.5 times that of the bullet vehicle.
●94% of all rear end collisions occur on straight roads.
●Women are twice as likely to end up with a whiplash injury as a man.
●The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety (IIHS) removes all receiver hitches before they do any rear crash testing – because receiver hitches reduce the amount of vehicle damage.
●Approximately 40% of the vehicles on the highway today have a receiver hitch.
Knowing How Receiver Hitches Effect Rear End Collisions Will Help You Litigate Low Speed Rear End Collision Injuries Involving Whiplash.
Low-impact crash cases are becoming increasingly more complex and harder to prove.

Is This Kit Worth It?
Hi Jeff--just settled a case for $50,000 where adjuster started off some months ago saying they didn't think anything could have happened to my client because no damage to her vehicle (receiver hitch / rear-end case). Convinced her otherwise, thanks to you.Jim Leavitt - Hawaii - 2.25.2011
